2008 SEMA: Dodge Challenger Convertible

MORE SEMA INFO: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/sema/2008/dodgechallengerconvertiblenews.html HIGH SPRINGS, Florida — Dodge has no plans to offer a Challenger convertible, which provides Coach Builders Ltd. an open shot at muscle car enthusiasts looking for an alternative to the popular Ford Mustang drop top. Now in final preparations for its official debut at the upcoming 2008 SEMA Show, the Coach Builders Dodge Challenger convertible will be shown alongside the company's Chrysler 300C and Cadillac CTS convertible conversions. Coach Builders' Larry Moran told Inside Line that production of the Challenger convertible will begin on November 15, and that the company is "already taking deposits for getting a place in line." The Challenger convertible conversion is priced at $16,000, Moran said. A 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 currently costs $41,695 including shipping charges and gas-guzzler tax, so expect to pay nearly $58,000 for open-air Challenger motoring. Moran also says that "custom interiors, performance options and wheels and tires" will be offered, but the details "are not firmed up yet." The car that will debut at SEMA was fortified with a Vortech Supercharger that bumps the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 to 560 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. It rides slightly lower on a KW coil-over suspension kit and 22-inch Foose Challenger wheels wrapped in Nitto tires. The convertible conversion reinforces the Challenger with strut bars hidden inside the trunk instead of a visible roll bar, and the acrylic polyester cloth hydraulic top is padded between the structure and the exterior fabric for sound and temperature insulation. A heated glass rear window and matching fabric headliner are also included.

Challenger New vs. Old: Vanishing Point Revisited
http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=126092 "Our sole Challenger has just broken the ring of evil the deep blue meanies have so righteously wrought — get through 'em baby, get through 'em." — Super Soul, Vanishing Point 1971 It happens deep in the Nevada desert, just past Austin. On a long, straight section of road with nothing to lose, our friends in the white 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T finally put the hammer down. At once, the rawness and purity of Kowalski's ride pulverizes the well-insulated interior of our 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, shredding the peace inside the modern car's cockpit with the same brute force Kowalski used to pierce a hole in the cool desert air 38 years ago. Even with my right foot buried, I see nothing but taillights until they disappear into the desert. In these few brief seconds, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is clearly defined by its soft edges and quiet Exhaust. Manufacturers don't let us feel cars raw and unfiltered anymore. Hammering down a desert road with a thin-rimmed steering wheel and pistol-grip shifter — that's raw. Four hundred and forty cubic inches and a four-speed — that's raw. Powerslides unhampered by electronic intervention — that's raw. In 1970, when Kowalski drove this very road — U.S. Highway 50 through Nevada — he felt it. And it was raw.





Camaro Fights Mustang and Challenger - Muscle Car Comparison
MORE MUSCLE CAR MADNESS @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/ In 2002, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second human being to set foot on the moon, punched a guy in the face for accusing him of faking the moon landing. Buzz was 72 years old at the time. Go right ahead and question the existence of the 2010 Ford Mustang GT, 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T and 2010 Chevy Camaro SS and they, too, might just give you a knuckle sandwich in the kisser. Like Mr. Aldrin, they bear names from long ago that have made a collective return to the limelight. Like Mr. Aldrin, they are American heroes with unparalleled legacies reaching across decades. And like Mr. Aldrin, they have Ph.Ds in kicking ass. Their makers may have proven that they have the financial acumen of a blind yak. However, we submit these pony car icons as proof that the home team can extract their craniums from their nether regions once in awhile and knock the cover off the ball.





Hurst Hemi Challenger @ 2008 SEMA
FOR MORE SEMA COVERAGE: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/News/articleId=131266 CHATSWORTH, California — Hurst gets its turn in the barrel with the new Dodge Challenger, readying a 2009 Hurst/Hemi Challenger for a splashy debut at the 2008 SEMA Show. The tuner says it takes a Dodge Challenger SRT8 and beefs it up to 500-plus horses. Hurst said the Hurst/Hemi Challenger will be available in four trim levels through participating Dodge dealers. Details include five-spoke Hurst alloy wheels and a classic pistol-grip Hurst shifter. Pricing has not yet been announced for the four trim levels. But Hurst spokesman Ron Flint said the special model will add a minimum $10,000 premium to the Challenger. "We are targeting a range of $10,000-$20,000 MSRP above the cost of the vehicles for Stages 1 through 3," he said in an e-mail to Inside Line. "Stage 4 will come later and is a built-to-order model that can range much higher depending on special options like special paint colors."





Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Unleashed @ 2008 SEMA
FOR FULL SEMA COVERAGE: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/sema/2008/2010fordf150svtraptor news.html LAS VEGAS — Ford gave journalists an early look today at the F-150 SVT Raptor, a high-performance off-road truck that will make its world debut at the 2008 SEMA Show. Designed for hard-core off-road use, the F-150 SVT Raptor gets a long list of suspension upgrades along with unique bodywork and an optional 6.2-liter V8 engine. The Raptor is the first application of the new 6.2-liter V8 and although its specifications haven't been finalized, Ford officials said to expect around 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. A 5.4-liter 3-valve V8 is the standard engine. Both engines are backed by a six-speed automatic transmission. All Raptors will come standard with four-wheel drive and a locking rear differential. Suspension upgrades include new upper and lower A-arms up front, retuned leaf springs in back and a set of race-quality Fox Racing Shox that combine to allow up to 11.2 inches of travel up front and 13.4 inches in back. The track is 7 inches wider than a standard F-150, so the Raptor also gets wider front and rear fenders along with longer half-shafts and a revised tie rod to maintain proper suspension geometry. The standard 17-inch wheels are cast aluminum while the specially designed BFGoodrich tires measure 315/70R17. The interior features bucket seats with additional side bolstering, metallic door trim, a unique SVT instrument panel and a set of console-mounted auxiliary switches for owner-installed accessories. Ford officials said they expect to begin production of the F-150 SVT Raptor in the summer of 2009.

2014 Mercedes E550 Cabriolet Test Drive & Luxury Convertible Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/e-class/2014/?id=32972 With the Mercedes E550 Cabriolet you get impeccable German engineering and super high quality materials. This is a fantastic touring machine in its own rite. A base E-Series car starts at $51,400 and the E550 Cabriolet tested here starts at $67,300 but the price can balloon with additional added packages and options. The engine powering the E550 Convertible is a twin-turbo 4.7 liter V-8 that makes 402 horsepower and 443 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy figures are 17 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. The great thing about this engine is a large torque curve. All that power and torque are necessary though as the E550 Cabriolet weighs a hefty 4048 lbs. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet has a couple of great features to improve comfort of the passenger. The first is a system called AIRCAP which is essentially a spoiler on top of the windshield and a deflector behind the rear seats. These 2 automated parts work together to push the air flow p and over the passenger compartment minimizing wind. The second feature is the AIRSCRAF system which is a set of vents integrated into the head rests. These vents produce warm or cool air for the drive and front passenger. The Mercedes E550 Cabriolet has a split personality. You can drive the car in ECO or Comfort mode which makes the car loft around on the roads. But switch the dial to Sport and the entire car wakes up and performs brilliantly.
